I graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 09, with a major in environmental studies and a minor in education. I studied abroad in New Zealand for a semester and had an amazing experience learning about viticulture, maori studies, and wildlife bio. I enjoy working in the community, I have taught a garden nutrition program at an elementary school, and I worked at the Seymour Marine Center in Santa Cruz managing the volunteers. I am very interested in environmental conservation work, and wildlife as well. I have yet to hone in on a specific career path, but I am looking forward to gaining as much hands-on experience as I can with this program. Apart from my love of the environment, I have a slight obsession with baking and I hope to open my own organic and sustainable bakery in the future.
